There are enough acts of extreme violence in the world. You can be a force in the world and even stop acts of extreme violence, without being capable of extreme violence yourself.

Context is everything, especially in the type of blog this is. It’s also a short quote now being applied to the entire world and all situations. On a political level, there is a lot to unpack here, ranging from schoolyard bullying to World War 2 and appeasement.
But in the eyes of context, it’s motivation to physically build yourself up and give yourself the option for how you want to live your life and make your own choices.
Your physical capability can make that choice for you.
Hope to see you in the gym or on the trails.
